Excerpt: This phone camera not so good,overall is perfect The Nokia 301 is based on the Nokia Series 40 platform and features a 2.4-inch display with a traditional alphanumeric keypad. It features a 3.2-megapixel camera allowing for a ton of editing and sharing options. Apps like Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp are also on board. The Nokia 301 is colorful - arriving in cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for around a week now and I'm really impressed. I've replaced my old Smasung Galaxy S2 with this as I feel that I now have no need for a real smart phone. My tablet (Nexus 7) takes care of all tasks that a smart phone can do, but better. Sure it's a little bigger, but it can come with me most places. This phone essentially means that having a phone is cheaper!
Pros: Battery life, Solid construction, Most features are there
Cons: App experience is slow and annoying (FB), No support for music streaming services, Lack of wi-fi
"A great feature phone packed with useful features."

Pros: Good size, fair camera with some useful features, expandable memory, excellent keyboard, good call quality, nice text conversation feature. Price.
Cons: Can be a little slow at times. You need to be aware that this is not a smartphone so internet is not the best experience. Some say that the battery is not the best but I have found it adequate for me.
"nice unit overall - well made, has a quality feel."

Pros: price = less than GBP 60. Nokia familiarity - you instantly know where you are with it and there is nothing complicated.
Cons: Camera sound ; there is an option on the camera settings menu to switch off the really annoying camera 'shutter sound' but it doesn't save the settings permanently. The next time you use the camera, the sound is there again.
Summary: My mobile is used mainly for calls and txts and so I rarely access the internet. This phone is fine for me as I have no wish to operate a smart phone. Battery life is good and the signal is strong in the vast majority of places visited.
Summary: If you want a more basic phone with a proper keyboard its very good. But you just have to remember its not a smart phone so Youtube, Spotify etc or anything else that needs flash player may not work. It also has a very good built in FM radio. It does not have WiFi capability but it does have Bluetooth. With my larger fingers, its good to have a proper keyboard instead of touch screen.
Summary: I got this for my father and now I want one to replace my stupid iPhone. This phone is snappy in its operation (unlike the Nokia 206), does everything you need in a very basic and fluid way (Twitter, Facebook, Mail etc) and should work in all the world because it's quad-band. The 206 which I tried before did not run on Three, but this one worked beautifully with Three (it wasn't as trivial to get data working on it though).
